MISSIONNew Democrat MLAs Alexis and D’Eith say people in Mission will have more opportunities to improve their literacy, math skills, and digital skills thanks to increased funding for Community Adult Literacy Programs.

“We live in a world that is built for people with reading, writing and digital literacy skills, making community literacy programs more important than ever,” said Pam Alexis, MLA for Abbotsford-Mission. “I’m glad to see funding for adult literacy programs across the province, including Mission Literacy in Motion to help make sure that we aren’t leaving anyone behind.”

Mission Literacy in Motion is receiving funding for their Community Adult Literacy Program. These community-based programs are offered by trained volunteers and focus on basic literacy, numeracy, life skills and employment preparation, and can be a starting point towards high school completion and/or further education or training.

“Everyone should have the opportunity to learn skills that help with everyday tasks, like applying for jobs or schooling and filling out forms online or at the doctors office, for example. This funding helps make sure that adults across the province who may experience challenges with literacy have access to programs that will make navigating the world we live in easier,” said Bob D’Eith, MLA for Maple Ridge-Mission

The New Democrat government invests $3.4 million annually for Community Adult Literacy Programs, as part of our commitment to giving people the skills and opportunities they need to succeed.
